I tried. I really did. I put on a tape. I positioned myself on the mat. I started the Ujayii breathing. Did a few asanas. I walked over to the machine, pulled out the tape and put in another. I sat down in lotus, focused my attention, made my intention. A few asanas later I was back at the machine. I turned it off.
I put some music on the CD player instead. Ahh, that was better. A few downward-facing dogs later I just wanted to make soup. Its true.
Maybe it is my monthly rhythms. Maybe I am just a bit lazy today, or...
Maybe its the waning moon.
Whatever the case, I chose to honor my body and its wishes today. And in just a few short minutes I'll be eating some lovely Cauliflower Cheese Soup, courtesy of Jamie Oliver.
